we learn from our mistakes

This is a very brief post — I just wanted to say that one of the ways in which our current wars are actually an improvement on previous wars is in the attitude of the military toward its wounded soldiers. The Army, for example, frequently posts pictures of amputees and other war casualties on the splash page of its online portal. Here is a recently posted picture of Sergeant 1st Class Jacque Keeslar playing wheelchair rugby (a.k.a. “murderball“) at the first “Warrior Games” at the U.S. Olympic Training Facility in Colorado Springs:
